When Jimmy Jefferson, a small time drug dealer, gets beaten up on the vast Elephant and Castle housing estate in South London, his father Deaf Jeff, offers him protection and work through a West African drug and people smuggling cartel in the same neighbourhood.

But Jimmy's distrust of his father is not unwarranted, and with a large haul of uncut cocaine on its way to the cartel, Jimmy decides to act.

He recruits Zafer, an old friend of Turkish descent whose parents have been put in hospital because they were late with their protection payments on their kebab shop. And when Ishmael unknowingly strays onto the wrong turf, Jimmy watches and sees the ex boy solider from Sierra Leone in action. Both are out for personal revenge and neither will stop until their bloodlust is satisfied, which suits Jimmy down to the ground. He also recruits Ibby, a young out of work Asian lad who would look more at home selling computers and would have to learn fast how to handle himself.

Jimmy becomes the leader of a multicultural gang that will have no territorial boundaries. They will go where they want and will ruthlessly put down anyone who gets in their way.

This is a story of greed and violence. Of betrayal and mistrust and revenge between families and enemies. This is the story of THE ELEPHANT BOYS.
